To the right of Blow there are a half dozen cracks of varying widths. These can be combined in various ways into some fun cracky highball boulder problems. These make good warm ups while you're waiting to climb other routes. They're also useful for teaching uninitiated friends some basic crack technique.
My favorite starts with the rightmost crack. Lay back until you're about two meters off the ground, then reach left to a pinch and do a little acrobatics to get your feet into a crack one meter to the left and continue up another meter or two.
The cracks are on the back side of Bilboard Buttress (the side facing Pixie Rock) and are just to the right of the route "Blow."
